this morning in midland city, alabama. that's where police have been waiting patiently for five days now. waiting for a suspected gunman to release a 5-year-old boy he's holding in an underground bunker. police say it is this man, and we're starting to hear why he may have killed the bus driver earlier this week. we still don't know why he grabbed the child. joining me now is victor blackwell. temperatures dipped below freezing there overnight. i guess that's probably complicated the situation a bit. >> reporter: yeah. this is the first night it's been this cold. and we've spoken with people who live in this area of southeast alabama. and they tell us that it typically is not this cold this time of year. it dipped below freezing, but we've spoken with sources close to the negotiating process, and they tell us there are indications that this bunker is heated. so that these two people were safe overnight. we've talked a lot about the accused shooter and kidnapper and the victim. but the governor of alabama, robert brently really brought this home this is essentially about a little boy. and
force winds and bearing some cities in more than 2 feet of snow. >>> and the manhunt underway in southern california. police say chris dorner is armed and dangerous. first, though, let's keep you updated on the massive blizzard. you have to look at how big this storm really is. check out the image from space, nasa is the one that provides this to us. the storm looks like a hurricane. and it's packing winds like a hurricane, 65 miles per hour or more in some places. that wind when you combine it with heavy snow is knocking out power. this morning, more than 650,000 homes and businesses across nine states now have no electricity and more than half of those are in massachusetts alone. we now know the storm has claimed at least one person's life. police say someone died in a storm-related crash in poughkeepsie, new york, please be careful if you're out traveling. also the storm has caused more than 1,700 flights to be canceled today. and that number is certainly expected to increase. there will be no flights out of boston's logan until at least sunday. it's a similar story at new

that freed that little boy. victor blackwell, live from midland city, alabama this morning. i know you're very excited to be sharing this information, victor. what do we know about the raid and why law enforcement actually decided to go in? >> good morning, zoraida. two reasons primarily. the first is because authorities say they observed jimmy lee dykes with a gun and the second reason is because in the day leading up to that raid, the communications with dykes had broken down. so they realized they could not wait any longer to go in and rescue ethan. ethan is safe. this is a photograph of the 5-year-old being taken into a hospital after nearly a week being held in an underground bunker in alabama. >> he's fine. he's laughing, playing, joking, eating, the things you would expect a normal 5-year-old or 6-year-old young man to do. he's very brave, he's very lucky. the success story is that he is out safe and doing great. >> reporter: the dramatic end came after officers saw 65-year-old jimmy lee dykes holding a weapon. they felt they could not hold off any longer. >> at this point, fbi

on the streets, you see cabs. not so much right now, huh? >> new york city, right? the city that never sleeps. this is a city that is in the middle of a deep slumber. when was the last time you saw the streets practically empty. look at the circle, columbus circle, practically empty. a couple cabs, maybe a snow plow if you're lucky, maybe a city bus. empty. it's like a white christmas today. isn't it? a winter wonderland. it is cold, i'll tell you that, but it's snowing and it's a quiet snow. not much wind going on. so really kind of a calm overhang on this evening in the middle of the night. the snow, though, is continuing to pile up. what i find interesting, though, is i really haven't seen many snow plows go by and the city has promised they were on patrol as of 7:00 tonight. perhaps they're in the boroughs in the neighborhoods making their way through. one interesting difference to this year, though, different from the blizzard that hit here in 2010, the city's kind of learned about it, learned from its mistakes, they have got kind of, brooke, a gps tracker of where the snow plows are. so
